I can't believe he died.

Alexander, I miss you. I found you dead just ten minuets ago. You looked so bad. Oh Alexander, I miss seeing you flaring at my finger. You'll never eat a bloodworm from my fingers again.

Guys he didn't stand a chance. He had a fungal infection, which came after poisoning from plastic (because I was stupid enough to house him in that stupid tub), and he had finrot (which he came to me with). I guess it was good that his last days were spent in a nice 5 gal. R.I.P lil' buddy.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I know what it's like to lose someone.
I lost Both of my Great-Grandmothers ( Dad's Side ) this year... ;'( I missed them so much... I feel bad for my Dad, too. Losing 2 Grandmothers... Anyway, how long have you had him? I know this would make it worse but, were you very close to him? Rather then any other Betta? I lost my Very 1st one. He had Ich. I did the Salt-Heat Treatment. It, didn't work out...

Thank you. He was my first aquabid purchase. I just feel like its all my fault. I'm such an idiot. Why couldn't I just use an aqueon minibow? I killed him. I just killed my own fish. I'm so stupid.

:( Don't beat yourself up. You did your best to save him.

He may have been sick unrelated to housing him in a plastic tub. I don't know what brand you used, but Sterilite is safe. I believe their spirits know when you do your best to save them. They also know you didn't do anything intentionally to hurt them.

He will be waiting for you swimming under the Rainbow Bridge when it's time.

Thanks Twilight Storm. I almost cried reading that post. He better not tailbite underneath the Rainbow Bridge. Like he would have any reason to *smiles bravely*. I'm avoiding sanatizing his tank, but if I ever restock it I dont want the new fish to get sick.
